As Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) officials begin to assess the damage wreaked on the city’s public transit system by Hurricane Sandy, all services in New York City remain suspended.
As officials begin efforts to address wide-scale damage, the authority has reported that in addition to the flooding of seven East River tunnels, there is flooding in other areas of the subway system. LaGuardia, Newark and JFK airports also remain closed, as well as Teterboro Airport in New Jersey.
Could These Resilient Solutions Storm-Proof the NY Transit System During the Next Superstorm?

Actually, I think these would be perfect for the local buses in the outer boroughs are are circumferential to Manhattan.
There is one place where bike racks are an absolute MUST: on bridges where pedestrians and bicycles are prohibited, but which have a bus line running over them.
The map does indeed claim that you can take your bus on the QBx1, however I am not sure whether this is actually the case. I’d like to see a rack on the trolley bus that goes from Crown Heights to Prospect Park. Word On The Street “The entire area around the Botanical Garden is a pedestrian nightmare, and unfortunately, the institution has shown no interest in improving safety. Eric Jaffe posts an interesting video on Atlantic Cities showing the taxi pulse in New York City. The animation is pretty straightforward, with people arriving in Midtown Manhattan in the morning, people coming and going from Midtown evens out during the day, and finally the number of cabs leaving Midtown peaks when a majority of people leave work and move throughout the city (mostly to the outer boroughs).


But as Jaffe explains, this analysis could also explain the importance of cabs as part of the overall transit network. King [the professor who guided the study] sees an important pattern for the data points: the origins and destinations have a geographical asymmetry that suggests people are only using cabs for one leg of their daily round trip. This includes not only the 108-year-old subway system, which experienced substantial, unprecedented flooding, but also all bus services, bridges and tunnels, as well as all Long Island Railroad, and Metro North lines.
The MTA has confirmed that the tunnel for the 1 train, between Chambers Street to South Ferry in southern Manhattan has flooded, as images are posted online of flooded stations in other areas of the city.
I imagine bus bike racks would be most useful on the more long-haul bus routes from the Outer boroughs into Manhattan rather than within Manhattan itself.
The last thing you want is to get out the back of the bus and watch it and your bike drive away. For one thing, it takes only a few seconds to retrieve the bike from the rack, certainly less time than it takes 10 people to board a bus.
The only time I took that bus, it did not have any racks on it, and I suspect that the claim is just that. Buses are moved or taken out of service and transit personnel would rather not deal with logistics of ensuring that a rack is on every bus.
The video visualizes the origin and destination densities of taxis in the city over a 24-hour period. If this were a video of people driving their own car to and from work, the morning and evening rush would be a perfect mirror.

As of yesterday night, seven subway tunnels under the East River have flooded, in addition to commuter tunnels, subway stations, rail yards and bus stations. You have to be able to alert the driver somehow that you need to get your bike before they step on the gas. Secondly, San Francisco has racks on all its buses, and I haven’t seen any major problems or delays because of it.
I’d be interested in hearing from people who have taken their bikes on the bus across the bridge though.
It stands to reason, then, that the other leg of the trip is taken by public transportation; after all, it's unlikely that many people park their car somewhere then take a cab home.
But in places where cars are less practical or you want to stay out later than the bus or train runs, cities need to supplement transit lines and fill in the gaps.
Finally, when buses run at an average speed of 7 mph, even a very out of shape cyclist can go faster.
Taxis have a role to play in the transit mix by offering freedom to generally move when and where you want, while at the same time complementing other modes of transit. So cyclists will end up taking the bus only when their bike is broken or they can’t bike for some reason. Even so, racks on buses would be very useful in providing a backup option for just those cases, and encourage people to bike more.
